Re: [Stretch] Status for architecture qualification

I run all sorts of PowerPC machines with various versions of Debian and I don't see that coming to end anytime soon.  These are excellent and reliable machines.  Biggest issues/hurdles are just graphics at the moment for both ATI/AMD and Nvidia cards, but even if that is never resolved/fixed or performance dwindles to nothing, I will continue to use these machines in text/console only mode if I have to.  Please do not drop this architecture!

In addition to the debian powerpc mailing list, powerpc users are active on the Ubuntu forums.  I'm running Debian Sid on a Powerbook and everything works except 3D acceleration.  I don't see a need to drop it.

I hope that my iBook G3 will serve me for years to come! Low power consumption fanless with a SSD disk make superquiet and quite nice!
